These treasures can be found either via online searches or by browsing microfilm and/or newsprint at libraries and archives.
On this website, I have written profusely about researching old newspapers, and have also kept readers informed as to online links that can be accessed to find ancestor articles - mostly for the U.S. and Canada, but from time to time, links to collections from all over the world.
I don't pass judgment on the features and quality of these online collections, because I leave that up to the reader to decide.
But in the interest of informing readers about collections that I feel are noteworthy, I will be highlighting some of these collections in this series.
The software is very easy to use and has an impressive list of features for browsing, searching, and it offers crowdsourced text correction.
I could go on and on about this collection and site. In my opinion it is one of the most impressive and for that matter, one of the 5 best newspaper research sites in the world. If you have Australian ancestors or are researching historic Australian newspapers for any reason, you must make use of Trove.
This is why I am choosing this collection as the "Online Historical Newspaper Collection of the Day".
